If you would have told me three years ago that things in my life would NEVER be the same I would have told you you were crazy. I thought I would forever struggle with skin issues, pain, night crawling, itching and blistering. I thought I would always be tired and sluggish and in a brain fog because I was getting older.
But that is exactly what has occurred over the nine months of my healing. Every aspect of my life has been demolished and reconstructed in a whole new and improved way.
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
NOTHING is as it used to be and it NEVER will be again. I’m moving on to new horizons. There is NO TURNING BACK.
Thank God for giving me a NEW LIFE.

What are you waiting for? START HERE
We live in a culture that seeks immediate results. We want things NOW. We want things easy.
I want to simplify it for you and share some history of how I got to where I am.
In the early 2000’s, I had heard about detoxing and cleansing when I worked for Dr Christopher’s herb shop connection back in college over. But like so many, I had never considered my need for changing anything or pursuing it for my health, I was young and healthy.
That was then.
Fast forward to Early 2016
I knew I was not feeling well, I was tired all the time, and I struggled to get out of bed. It seemed like a mild depression or lack of motivation. Maybe I was just getting older.
I had settled for this as normal. I couldn’t figure out why I had no energy, after all, I ate a variety of good food and drank only water.
On top of that, my kidneys were hurting almost constantly, reminding me of the nickel sized kidneys stone that had put me in the hospital for three days while camping in August of 2012 and my skin eczema had reached an all time unbearable, itchy, and blistering state that kept me up most nights. Especially the week leading up the the full moon.
I started experimenting with removing added sugar from my diet and discovered that my eczema and my kidneys were fueled by added sugars. Eating a clean diet and slowly introducing green drinks, Probiotics and Digestive enzymes as well as Chicken Broth and bone broth to my diet. I also had checked out a book from the library The 30 Day Faith Detox by Laura Harris. In this book, I found helpful tips on easy detoxes from one organ to the next, recipes and shopping recommendations, as if this wasn’t enough great stuff, she wraps it all up with a great daily devotional and spiritual and relational detox tips. (I only made it to day 10—Here is why ~ I am looking forward to completing the 30 day journey as soon as I stop breastfeeding my 5th child)
I soon started experimenting with removing added sugar from my diet and discovered that my eczema and my kidneys were fueled by added sugars.
I knew I had stumbled on something incredibly effective and dove right in. My body was overloaded in many areas and I was desperate for lasting result.
Here is my reasons for detoxing.
About this same time, I had been talking with my friend in South Africa and gaining a lot of good Ayurvedic remedies and I had checked out the book 30 Day Faith Detox By Laura Harris from the library. This all fell into place at the right time. After eliminating added sugar from my diet, I began noticing changes to my eczema and even surprised by the disappearance of the corn on my foot that I had been quite used to as the new normal. I started using the methods in the The 30 Day Faith Detox which included Detoxing the Liver gently, Colon and Eating Clean.

Key to detoxing
Do I really need to detox?
But hold fast and start today. FOR THIS IS ONLY THE BEGINNING…
CONTINUE READING ABOUT THE TURNING POINT…
So slow down and be patient… Live each day to its fullest.
One day at a time…
My eczema started clearing up after I was able to go without sugar and started drinking my greens from Purity Products Organic Juice Cleanse. It would flair back up when I snuck any sugar and that dang maddening itch began. I would notice a pattern as I was out standing outside observing the full moon. So I began to pay attention and realized that quite a bit of restlessness, swelling and itching occurred each month for about 5 days prior and up to the full moon. I tried many things that helped, like changing my diet, morning detox drink, and some that didn’t. While diets is key, the easiest most simple methods are my Nightly Detox Baths followed by soaking my hand in vodka and essential oils and alternating with my thyme discovery. I used these things nightly until my hand cleared and anytime I could feel a flare up followed by applying Pine Salve. With patience and vigor over the past 8 months I have been clear of painful blistering for two months now. What are you waiting for? Get started today or step it up.
None of this would be possible without the strength and wisdom provided me by God. May He get all the glory for healing me and providing all that’s necessary from this day on. All His amazing food and the Spirit to guide me.
Psalm 84:10-12 King James Version (KJV)
For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness. For the Lord God is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly. O Lord of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.
is the largest detox organ of our body. Once I accepted this, I started taking detox baths every night until my skin cleared up nicely. I simply used a recommended bath I had heard about online and added some essential oils for fragrance.
My mom has used Young Living Essential oils for years for massage therapy, but I had just thought they were used for their scent alone. I just hadn’t grasped the healing properties they hold until this year.
Before going to bed each night I would get proactive, I found that I could sleep longer if I bathed before bed.
Skin Brushing is great to speed up detoxing and help the body move lymph and boost the immune system. Basically running a dry bristle brush over the skin lightly several times in sets starting at limbs and moving slowly towards the heart.
Standing in the shower just before running the bath or before bed.
We have lymph nodes in several areas of our bodies and our lymphatic system is part of our immune system and it gets backed up. There is no pump and it relies on exercise and movement in order to work and flow freely and oftentimes gets backed up and causes inflamed lymph nodes when our body is trying to fight off infections. Skin brushing helps get thing moving freely as intended.
I was healing from ECZEMA and I found heat helped soothe the itch. The HOTTER THE WATER, THE BETTER. I even turned up the temperature on my water heater. PLEASE USE CAUTION AND DO NOT BURN YOURSELF OR YOUR KIDS!!!
Here’s my nightly detox bath soak
Variation of detox bath soak
During the coarse of my healing, I would soak as much as possible. Almost nightly, and more frequently when my eczema was flaring. I would only use a mild soap such as goat milk soap
I followed my bath by drying completely and rubbing a mix of 1/4 cup vodka, 5 drops of thyme and 5 drops of cloves essential oils on any eczema until the itch has settled, along with any dry spots, zits, moles, and skin tags and allowing to air dry then applying a pine salve I had made onto my eczema. I had tried it before from my mom and loved it so much that I made my own.
These are some suggestions on detoxing essential oils

“So what? Everyone likes sugar.”
We all NEED a little sugar in our diet. A little sugar isn’t going to hurt you. Well, there lies the issue. What is the BIG DEAL?
Natural sugars in moderation are necessary for body functioning in a healthy and natural way. However, many of us are at the toxic level of ADDED sugar and consume more than we should in a month, every single day. I had to come to terms with the temporary pleasures that wreck MAJOR havoc on my health. Not to mention the GMO’s and refining process that produce toxins.
TAKE THE CHALLENGE
Take the time today to treat yourself. However, instead of sugar, swap out one of your regular choices with honey, molasses, stevia, agave or a fruit. Be cautious here as these are still sugars and less is needed for sweetness. Here is how sugar is ranked.
Maybe this means taking something you enjoy and giving it a makeover and substituting ingredients. It is important to use less of the alternative sugar.
Be careful not to fall into looking for sugar-free as an alternative. There are many unsafe alternatives that are as bad or worse than added sugar.
Use less sugar alternatives as they are even considered questionable by some as some healthy sugars that can kill you.

I have discovered the natural way to improve my life. It’s far too good to keep to myself. This is for all my friends and family who are curious about my new lifestyle changes and all those others who would like to learn what has worked for me.
Some of us grow up hearing, ‘it’s all about our diet and exercise.’ Well, if you are like me, you may think, ‘I do not need to diet’, or , ‘I eat pretty healthy.’ This is the thinking that has gotten me into a bit of trouble. Maybe you have trouble losing weight, feel sluggish, losing momentum or plain just don’t ever feel good. You may be on your own healing path and have tips to share. You’re in the right place.
Well, diet and exercise is a broad and overused term. I will attempt to break it down and explain exactly what that means to me today…
I am a 36 year old, mother of five children and 110 pounds on a heavy day. I grew up in Utah, eating the average American diet of cold cereals, malt o meal, oatmeal, eggs, french toast, pancakes, waffles all smothered in margarine and imitation maple syrup and toast with margarine for breakfast’s. Macaroni and cheese, ramen noodles, school lunches and fast foods once or twice a month for lunches. I enjoyed a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables for snacks and home cooked dinners (mostly out of a can of coarse). I drank a cup or two of milk daily and a juice on occasion. We had six kids in the family so the fresh food went quickly.
I recreationally used drugs and alcohol and tobacco as a teenager, but I quickly turned my life around upon getting pregnant, and turning my life over to God and being forgiven by the blood shed by Jesus Christ for all my sins. I married at 17 and began my family.
I have always been fairly healthy, but occasionally I had suffered from dry skin and cracking, some athletes feet, eczema and warts. These skin issues went dormant mostly after my teen years of partying. (I will share my conclusion on this in a later post)
As a mom, I loved to cook mostly from scratch and use family recipes, I made homemade pies like my dad and my mom’s no bake cheesecake for Christmas and Thanksgiving. I enjoy creating new and healthy snacks, rice krispie treats, cookies of all kinds (with what I thought was a healthy twist.) I also enjoyed homemade pancakes smothered in imitation syrup, whole wheat flour, oatmeal raisin cookies with nuts, I served my family crepes weekly (white flour, egg, milk, a thin pancake smothered in margarine and powdered sugar).
All in all, I seemed pretty healthy most of the time. I did start to feel sluggish, low energy, and had a complete lack of motivation or ability to keep up with my kids the past 10 years or so, but this is normal right?
So I thought…
WHY WAS I STILL SICK?
This is only the beginning of amazing things to come.

Alcohol Type and Strength
The appropriate alcohol strength for your tincture will depend upon the qualities of the plant material being used. Stronger is not always better!
Tips for matching your alcohol strength to the herb being tinctured:
40% to 50% alcohol by volume (80- to 90-proof vodka)
• “Standard” percentage range for tinctures.
• Good for most dried herbs and fresh herbs that are not super juicy.
• Good for extraction of water-soluble properties.
67.5% to 70% alcohol by volume (half 80-proof vodka and half 190-proof grain alcohol)
• Extracts the most volatile aromatic properties.
• Good for fresh, high-moisture herbs like lemon balm, berries, and aromatic roots.
• The higher alcohol percentage will draw out more of the plant juices.
85% to 95% alcohol by volume (190-proof grain alcohol)
• Good for dissolving gums and resins but not necessary for most plant material.
• Extracts the aromatics and essential oils bound in a plant that don’t dissipate easily.
• This alcohol strength can produce a tincture that’s not easy to take and will also dehydrate the herbs if used for botanicals beyond gums and resins.
30 oz tallow or lard (be sure to weigh on a scale)
4 oz 100% pure lye
11 oz distilled water
*When making soap, always measure by WEIGHT, not by volume
0.5 oz essential oil if desired
SUPPLIES NEEDED READY TO USE
Silicone or freezer paper lined container or soap box
Stick blender all metal
APPROXIMATED TIME 2-3 HRS
In a heat tolerant glass or stainless bowl or jar and in an area with good ventilation (I do this under with my oven fan on), carefully stir the lye into the measured water. ALWAYS add the lye to the water– do NOT add the water to the lye, as it can result in a volcano-like reaction.
Use gloves, goggles and mask for protection from.
Stir this lye/water mixture until it has dissolved and let it sit for a few minutes. There will be a chemical reaction between the lye and water, and the water will become very hot, so be careful handling the container. Wait til the solution is clear and cool enough to handle.
Place the melted tallow in the crockpot (if it’s not already there), and slowly stir the lye/water mixture in.
Switch to an immersion blender (trust me, unless you want to stand there stirring for an hour, you’ll use an immersion blender), and proceed to blend the tallow, lye, and water until you reach TRACE.
TRACE is when the mixture turns to a pudding-like consistency and holds its shape when you drip a bit on top.
Now put the lid on the crockpot, set it on LOW, and allow it to cook for 45-60 minutes. It will bubble and froth, which is fine. Just keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn’t attempt to bubble out of the pot. If it attempts an escape, just stir it back down.
Once it has cooked for a while and passes the “zap” test, IT DOESN’T HAVE A ZAP IF SMALL AMOUNT IS TOUCHED TO THE TIP OF TONGUE, pour/scoop it into a mold and COVER WITH a piece of CARDBOARD AND WRAP IN A TOWEL and allow it to set for 12-24 hours.
Remove the solid soap from the mold, cut into bars and set on a wire rack to cure for 4-6 weeks. Soap will not be usable until then.
MOST IMPORTANT PRAY PRAY PRAY AND DO WHAT GOD GUIDES YOU TO DO, then understand the following options.
KNOW YOUR RIGHTS!
(This is for informational purposes only and not to be considered legal advice-Always take these matters seriously AND CONSULT A COMPETENT FAMILY ATTORNEY FAMILIAR WITH CPS You may consider getting one on retainer prior to any need for them or ASAP if encountering a situation involving the threat of CPS involvement)
KNOW YOUR RIGHTS….
RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT
YOU ARE NOT LEGALLY OBLIGATED TO COMMUNICATE, RESPOND, EXPLAIN OR TALK TO CPS FOR ANY REASON.
It is ALWAYS easier to keep your children AWAY from the CHAINS of CPS than it is to get out of their GRIPS once they inch their way into your lives. THEREFORE, DO NOT GIVE THEM ANYTHING TO WORK WITH. Many innocent parents willingly comply, believing they will be vindicated, only to find themselves trampled on and intruded upon. Some innocent families are EVEN separated on very little evidence or hearsay.
Be sure your children know that they have the right to say, “I don’t want to be interviewed without my parents, an attorney and a tape recorder present.”
RIGHT TO AN ATTORNEY
IMPORTANT- Don’t speak to CPS. Get an attorney familiar with CPS and have all communications made through them.
ANYTHING YOU SAY, CAN AND WILL BE TWISTED AND USED AGAINST YOU. They do not follow regular court procedures and are not based on “innocent until proven guilty” notions. They operate on hearsay and potentially harmful accusations.
It is not the time to prove anything. It is their job to try to find backing to their case.
Don’t agree to/or sign anything without an attorney present. Do NOT ENTER into CONTRACT with them.
RIGHT TO PRIVACY
Note: For CPS this isn’t ONLY about the initial report. Alligations only give them an invitation to seek more evidence on you and to BUILD A CASE AGAINST YOU. I think many people find themselves thinking it is simply about the one incident that initiated the contact. They are looking for ANY sign that they can use.
This could include CPS attempting to gather info:
DO NOT ASSIST THEM, IT IS NOT YOUR JOB TO PROVE ANYTHING.
If they show up after being asked not to return without a warrant or continue contacting you after you have nicely asked them to contact your attorney, they are in violation and you MAY consider a restraining order, tort claim and harassment suit.
Keep Legal Records
“IF” you are being called, your child interviewed, or other contact is being made through an attorney or directly.
1-Keep a spiral-bound notebook on hand and use it to document every contact with child protective services or child protective services appointed “service providers”. Don’t back down on this! Prepare in advance, and stand firm against CPS agents!
2-Write a letter of facts
After each contact, write a letter to your social worker or party involved via certified mail(some recommend having such a letter notarized) detailing what occurred, (IF CONTACT IS HAPPENING – request that the social worker confirm or deny the facts as you understand them within ten days of receipt of your letter.) WHO, WHAT, WHEN WHERE WHY HOW DATE TIME ETC.
If no letter disputing the facts is received, then your statement of facts will be automatically confirmed. This form of documentation can later be used as evidence in your favor in juvenile family court.
Dedicate ONE notebook to this and ONE pen. Its authenticity is not likely to be questioned but if it is this will be the easiest way for an expert to verify it. Keeping the same pen and notebook.
Make a medical records request and gather ALL medical records of the child from birth if possible.
Document anything else regarding the case and the care of your children.
Contact your local and state representatives and inform them of your situation and that you feel that you are being harassed on unfounded accusations and that you fear for your children’s well being.
HOW TO HANDLE CPS
RECORD. RECORD. RECORD. Download a call recorder app to your phone. Even pretending to record (if your phone is dead, will keep them on their toes.
CPS CALLS YOU: LEAVES A MESSAGE
CPS CALLS YOU: YOU ANSWER AND ARE TAKEN BY SURPRISE
DO NOT SAY ANYTHING ELSE. IF YOU CAN’T RECALL ALL THIS SIMPLY SAY. “I AM SORRY YOU CAUGHT ME AT A BAD TIME, YOU ARE WELCOME TO CONTACT ME AFTER I CAN SPEAK WITH MY ATTORNEY”
DO NOT tell them you will call them. It is their job to CALL you.
If they don’t call you – the better for you. If you promise to call and don’t then they might make note that you didn’t do what you said.
Note: write down every detail you can and start gathering needed documentation to support your position.
CONTACT AN ATTORNEY FAMILIAR WITH CPS – Ask them to contact cps and demand all further contact be with attorney present. Do not permit children to speak to CPS without their own attorney present and a tape recording. Ask that the attorney make a written statement of everything asked with answers. Be sure the social worker reads, dates and signs it as accurate.
SCENARIO 1- CPS SHOWS UP ALONE
CPS CANNOT JUST ENTER YOUR HOME OR TAKE YOUR KIDS.
CPS does NOT have the “Right” (Authority) to go into your house without a warrant and that law enforcement has to declare “imminent danger” for kids to be removed without a warrant.
“My kids are Safe and Cared for, please contact my attorney if you have anything else you need, now excuse me, I must get back to my kids.”
SCENARIO 2- CPS SHOWS UP WITH POLICE (SAME AS IF THEY SHOW ALONE) BUT ADDING
”Now you don’t REALLY think my child is in imminent danger, do you?”
Typical Police Response:
“no, we just want to make sure everything is alright.”
”Well thank you for your concern, I wish to retain my PRIVACY, please come back with a warrant.” CLOSE THE DOOR.
***THIS QUESTION RULES OUT IMMINENT DANGER***
THERE MUST BE 1 of 2 REASONS IN ORDER TO ENTER YOUR HOME
REAL vs FAKE WARRANTS
Real Warrants MUST
AT SCHOOL/DAYCARE OR CHURCH… Mandatory Reporters
SUBMIT A PARENT AUTHORITY/CHILD RIGHTS STATEMENT anytime your child is in the care of someone else. (Linked below)
STATEMENTS SHOULD INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING….
You may want to submit a letter to your kids schools IMMEDIATELY, stating that you revoke your parental delegation and do not consent to your children speaking to anyone, including government officials, or agency representatives without their parent or attorney present and tape recorded..
PREVENTION (UPON ADMISSION)
Consider making a Written Consent to Treat ADDENDUM NOTICE OF PARENTAL AUTHORITY AND CHILD RIGHTS statement asking for a hospital notary to sign.
“I DO NOT AUTHORIZE MY CHILD TO BE SEEN OR TO SPEAK TO ANYONE WITHOUT PARENTS OR MY ATTORNEY PRESENT…I INVOKE MY RIGHT TO FULL INFORMED CONSENT, TO ASK QUESTIONS AND IF NEEDED SEEK A SECOND OPINION IN ALL CARE DECISIONS FOR ME AND MY CHILD.”
You may consider presenting a copy of this to your current medical team upon admission
LEAVING AMA (To leave or Not to Leave) A THREAT HAS BEEN MADE
If there is a threat made to contact CPS,

Tallow has been used safely and healthily for hundreds of years for frying, baking and more and in moderation can still be considered a healthy fat to cook with. It can be time consuming to make but with cheap access to healthy grass fed suet, or kidney fat, you simply cannot go wrong.
Grass-fed beef fat is a great source of oleic acid, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) and other fatty acids that are thought to increase “good” cholesterol, support brain health and a strong metabolism.
Tallow is fat rendered from beef and is solid at room temperature but melts into a liquid when heated.
U.S. Department of Agriculture claims that 1 TBSP of tallow has an estimated
13 g. of fat (including 6.5 g. saturated fat and 5.5 g. of monounsaturated fat)
0 g. of carbs, protein, sugar or fiber
Tallow contains Vitamins
Tallow also contains Nutrients
Tallow is rich in Fatty acids and helps you absorb more nutrients from your food.
Tallow May Support a Healthy Weight being rich in CLA, a fatty acid and supports a healthy metabolism. Consuming healthy Beef Tallow stimulates the release of glucagon, the hormone that signals to your body that it’s time to burn stored fat (visceral body fat) to use for energy leading to weight loss.
Talllow Helps You Absorb Essential Vitamins as fats in your diet are needed to absorb fat-soluble essential vitamins that help support your immune system, skeletal system, heart, skin and more such as vitamins A, D, E and K.
Tallow is a Healthy Source of Fats, Including Cholesterol and similar to the type of fat found in olive oil and is thought to have a little effect on blood cholesterol levels, or even possess the ability to raise HDL cholesterol, the good stuff and had been shown to reduce obesity-related type 2 diabetes in some cases. It also contains a beneficial ratio of Omega 3 and Omega 6 fats. Therefore, it may provide some benefits, such as supplying you with fats and cholesterol that are needed to fuel the brain and produce hormones.
Estimated Fat Content
Tallow Reduces inflammation – tallow contains conjugated linoleic acid, which is a natural anti-inflammatory.
Healthy oils, such as coconut oil and avocado oil, can also supply you with a mix of healthy fats. However, you would do well to avoid refined vegetable oils as they may be rancid due to exposure to high heat and are very high in pro-inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids.
Grass-fed cattle provide the highest-quality beef tallow in terms of nutrients and tend to store more omega-3s, CLA and other beneficial compounds in their bodies in comparison to those cows raised in typical feedlots and grain diets.
Tallow has one of the highest smoke point of cooking oils of around 400–420 degrees. Smoke point is the temperature at which an oil starts to burn, smoke and lose many of its nutritional benefits and chemical compositions may change. Thus tallow can be used at high temperature while avoiding problems such as free radicals.
Consuming fats like tallow can help support the skin and can also be applied with benefits topically.
Tallow’s high smoke point, between 400–420 degrees, makes it perfect for frying, baking, sauteing and roasting.
Popular cooking uses for tallow:

Risks and Side Effects
There is alot evidence stating that natural animal fats may actually be healthier than partially hydrogenated vegetable shortenings, especially the kinds that contain trans fats, which have been linked to conditions including heart disease.
Finding high-quality tallow from grass-fed cattle is important to avoid hormones, antibiotics and more. It’s important to avoid hydrogenated animal fats (meaning they contain not only cholesterol and saturated fat, but also dangerous trans fats). Making your own tallow from a local grass fed beef is a healthy alternative.
If you are at high risk of heart disease and have a history of high cholesterol, consider limiting your use of pure animal fats and consider consulting your doctor.

KIDNEY FAT: BEFORE a nice piece of kidney fat
(not all pieces are this clean and nice to work with)
AFTER kidney cut out of fat
FILL THE CROCK OR POT FULL OF FAT
BEFORE stick blending DURING stick blending
AFTER stick blending
DON’T walk away from this in the middle. I have found this can cause cheesecloth to clog with tallow if allowed to cool in the jars halfway through.
TIP: I tighten up the edges of the cheesecloth to avoid spilling chunks into my CLEAN TALLOW. Do a little testing of your cheesecloth by slowly pouring and adjusting as needed. You DO NOT want to allow too much chucky fat to slip by this step. If more than a cup of chucky fat slips through, you may want to repeat the steps PRIOR to filling your jars.
BOWL WITH CHEESECLOTH SECURED (I use my instapot insert with the rubber lid seal around it like in the picture)
REMOVING FAT CHUNKS FROM CHEESECLOTH
REMOVED FAT – WILL RETURN TO HEAT AND REFILTER ONE MORE TIME
BOWL OF FAT CHUNKS
NOTE:***DON’T be tempted to skip the first filtering process and filter directly into your jars, be assured, you WILL prevent a headache, mess and save time by using both filtering processes due the mess created by the excessive amount of solids that can slip by your filter in the funnel each time you clean it out (which is needed almost every scoop). I have tested both ways while learning and the 2 filtering method is by far the easiest, cleanest and fastest method I have tried.
BIG MISTAKE BY SKIPPING THE FIRST FILTERING SLOWS PROCESS DOWN AND ALLOWS TALLOW AND CHUNK TO COOL WHILE CONTINUALLY CLEANING AND DUMPING THE FUNNEL AND SMALL CHEESECLOTH FILLED WITH CHUNKS. NOT TO MENTION THE GREASY HANDS AND EQUIPMENT AND THE OTHER BLOOPERS THAT CAN OCCUR. IF NEEDED TOSS ALL THE CHEESECLOTH AND GO BACK AND START STEP 10 AGAIN.
NOTE: To insure a good seal and clean tallow- DON’T walk away from this in the middle. I have found this can cause premature spoilage of tallow if allowed to cool in the jars halfway through.
IMPORTANT NOTE: DIRTY GREASY RIM – If you may have dripped tallow down the funnel or overflowed you will want t use a Hot damp clean cloth to carefully remove grease from the rim. OR start with a separate clean jar with funnel and pour hot tallow avoiding grease on the rim.
Hot tallow will be clear like canola oil.
Cool tallow will be white and opaque

Some Christians believed the three leaf clovers to be symbolic of the trinity and the four leaf clovers as a symbol of the cross. Red clover belongs to the pea family with nutritional and herbal properties historically used to promote healing and health in many conditions involving the circulatory and respiratory systems such mastalgia, premenstrual syndrome, cancer prevention, indigestion, hypercholesterolemia, whooping cough, asthma, bronchitis, and sexually transmitted diseases.It is commonly used as a blood cleanser and may also have blood-thinning properties, which keeps blood clots from forming. It has been used improve blood flow.
Researchers think that isoflavones, like those found in red clover, might help reduce symptoms of menopause, such as hot flashes due to estrogen-like effects.
Red clover sprouts are packed with nutrients including minerals such as iron, phosphorous, calcium, magnesium and potassium phosphorus, calcium, magnesium and vitamins A, C, B and K. They are dense in protein and unique antioxidants. They benefit your health in many different ways and one of 7 sprouts that can sustain your life alone.Health Benefits of Clover SproutsCommon health benefits of red clover sprouts include detoxification of the body, reducing the risk of certain types of cancer, prevention of chronic diseases, and boosting circulation and more.

Custer et. al, states that the number of antioxidants such as phytochemicals and isoflavones, may reduce cancer cell formation and slow the spread of the disease by reducing oxidative stress in the body.
One serving of clover sprouts contains roughly 5% of recommended daily iron needs. How to Grow CloverIn Your GardenIt can be easily grown around the garden to attract bees and other pollinators and used as a green mulch over winter to promote healthy soil. Seed sparingly as it can easily spread and take over, but dont fret, it will not be there forever and can be easily munched over and replaced by other garden plants. I get my seeds from Mountain Rose Herbs in Oregon. It is native to Europe, Western Asia, and northwest Africa, but planted and naturalised in many other regions.
Harvest blossoms in mid summer, as the plant flowers become nickel sized and bright purple, before wilting, by cupping the blossom stem between teo fingers with the palm up and gently popping the tops off of all fully bloomed blossoms and letting them dry in a well ventilated location for a few days.
You may use immediately or dried, steeped as a tea, in salads, MAKE A TINCTURE by pouring 80 proof vodka until 1 inch of liquid remains above the packed in herb in a clean Mason jar or crush dried herb and CAPSULATE them.
I prefer fresh for nutrient retention or alcohol tinctures as they are essentially useful forever and holds potency better than other methods.
To use as a sprout, soak seeds overnight and rinse, make a thin layer over the sprouting surface used. Sprouting lids can be used as can a screen over a lid or other specially designed sprouters. In a pinch you can sprout in a bag on a moist paper towel.

During my journey for health I had asked my husband, who owns a 24 hour restoration company that deals with mold, to bring me home something that I could use for the surface mold in my basement shower. He had always bragged about the amazing, safe and natural products he used for work and I had to test it myself.
It took him a few months to finally bring me home the CHEMICAL. I was so excited to read the ingredients. Thymol (a component of thyme oil) and lemon. I had to laugh. Here, this powerful non toxic product was used by the professionals to treat child care centers, hospitals and molds and fungus. It is a virucidal, bactericidal, fungicidal, tuberculocidal and even kills HIV on pre-cleaned surfaces. It is safe to use on food surfaces and no hazard or FDA approval on the bottle. I used it for the mold and got some on my hands, on my eczema and it tingled and burned like mad.
I was having a REACTION, a bad thing right?
I was wrong. My eczema turned a page and began to clear up. I was so excited. Natural, safe and effective at treating my eczema and mold. I discovered a wonder product by accident. Actually, God gave me this amazing discovery because He loves us all and I had been asking for answers and healing. I was desperate and open to whatever He would show me.
BUT WAIT… If this product “kills” eczema, than there must be a cure for it completely. After all, this product KILLS HIV and 99.99% of germs…
Must be pretty powerful stuff. Right? Please dilute your Thyme oil. Only a little is needed. After all 0.23 % of this gallon bottle was thymol. The rest was water and scent…
I use Young Living essential oils to clean my house and bath in as well as for healing.
You can use any oils, herbs, or whatever you would like. Just be cautious of your source.
I was doing laundry one afternoon and using my usual borax and baking soda and I decided to use a little vinegar. I also had to put my hands in the water to push all the clothes in. Well my eczema on my hands started burning like mad. I couldn’t believe how badly they burned and itched and even blistered. It felt like biting under my skin. I could not handle all the agony.
I was experiencing another bad REACTION, ‘I won’t do that again’, I thought!
I applied some of my Herbal Pine Salve and went about my day.
Later that evening I realized that all the blisters were healing and that almost all the eczema was soothed. Another coincidence? I think not. Once again, God was giving me another aspect of knowledge for my healing. I know now that I had experienced all this in order to help others overcome this painful and irritating aspect of their lives.
For those suffering with the maddening itch of eczema, flaring, blistering, itchy and chafing- a simple cayenne scrub may aid in healing and itch relief. Start off slow on the cayenne and test on a small area. It isn’t the easiest to tolerate at first but has played a major part in my healing journey along with my diet changes. Here are some recipes I used along with my Cayenne Pain Salve.
Cinnamon Paste (a mild beginning)
Mix ingredients well and apply as needed. Nightly until healing well. Works well to relieve itching and draw out eczema. Scrub, massage, scrape, or simply wash off. Do not hesitate to scrub a little rough as this will help to get the rooted eczema to the surface.
Cayenne/Cinnamon Yogurt (for those just starting out and need a milder start)
Mix ingredients well and apply as needed. Nightly until healing well. Works well to relieve itching and draw out eczema. Scrub, massage, scrape, or simply wash off. Do not hesitate to scrub a little rough as this will help to get the rooted eczema to the surface.
Cayenne/Cinnamon Scrub Recipe (For those ready to rage war and try anything)
Mix ingredients in a small jar and apply to eczema or acne as needed for relief. Daily or nightly as able. Cover with towel or plastic bag as needed to leave on as long as possible. (You may want to test a small area and the burn is temporary and you build a tolerance to it . (starting out you may just want to add a dash of cayenne and work up to more) I literally chased my eczema around my hand this way. I had to get serious and attack full force.
Directions for using Cayenne treatments
Mix ingredients well and apply as needed. At night or an hour before bedtime.
Cover with a plastic bag or old clothes to prevent staining clothing.
Wash as needed but burn doesn’t always stop immediately. Apply cool yogurt or other neutral cover to draw any burning needed.
The burning may continue after washed off so go at your own pace and tolerance level. I was hard core and went full force after a while as my torture and itching was severe as well.
Caution: Wash Hands Thoroughly after application or use. Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth or other sensitive areas after using.
After complete or in the morning, apply Pine Salve.

CAUTION: I would not try the cayenne with a young child. Cinnamon will burn a little so maybe start with a Tbsp and work up to more. I would do this for about a week during the most severe itchy times of the month as the eczema cycles.

James 1 King James Version (KJV)
James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting. My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted: But the rich, in that he is made low: because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away. For the sun is no sooner risen with a burning heat, but it withereth the grass, and the flower thereof falleth, and the grace of the fashion of it perisheth: so also shall the rich man fade away in his ways. Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him. Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. Do not err, my beloved brethren. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

“I Could Never Be a Health Nut!”
“I AM NOW PROUD TO BE A BIT OF A HEALTH NUT.”
And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
Here is how I parasite cleansed. It was long and ongoing for about 3-6 months initially, then an ongoing maintenance diet and watching what I eat. I am not eating processed foods, GMO’s, toxins, or sugar. It is a a complete lifestyle change.
I only cleansed after I was ready and eliminating stool regularly. (This is great time to STOP AND GET REGULAR and gut healing and come back to PARASITES LATER.)
With my homemade tinctures (Like these store bought Parasite Cleanse of Black Walnut, cloves and wormwood.)
It is recommended to start with the smaller dose and increase after you know what your body can handle. Dr Hulda Clark Recommends a smaller dose, but since I made my own, I wanted to be sure to get enough.
Mix 2 Cups pineapple juice to 1/2 cup seeds and split for 1 days worth
KEEP GOING AND DON’T GIVE UP OR IN UNTIL THE WAR IS OVER…
Slow and steady…
I continually eat antiparasite foods and will cleanse every so often for a week or so just to keep my body in check.
I will get back into this active cleanse routine every 6 months or so when I no longer breastfeed as there are parasites everywhere and toxins too. Again, this is a new toxic free lifestyle.
